Transcript Him Run and Jump 252 ■ Sports Triple jumper Don Parish, Byron Criddle, and Head Coach Tom Tellez discuss stamina. Photo by Hugti Tom. Runners learn the importance of stretching before practice. Photo by Hugh Tom. In order to continue the trend of quality runners at UH, track star Leroy Burrell has gone to the forefront of the school's track team. Following in the steps of former UH runners Carl Lewis and Joe Deloach, both Olympic gold medalists, Burrell qualified for the NCAA Championships in the 100-meters, 200-meters, and long jump. He also qualified for the 4xl00-meter relay with teammates Rayford Ross, Sam Lowe and Clyde Duncan, Jr. Burrell, a junior, attended Penn Wood High School, where he was named the Eastern Track Athlete of the Year in 1985 after he won the Pennsylvania 3A state track meet. He was a high school Ail- American and a member of the junior world-record 400-meter relay team. Burrell's freshman year at UH saw him qualify for three events in the NCAA championships, reminding many of the prowess of Carl Lewis. Burrell finished second in the long jump event before injuring his knee, thus causing him to sit out the entire 1987 season. In 1988, Burrell again qualified for the NCAA championships, where he finished fifth in the 100-meters and seventh in the long jump. This past year, his hot-streak has continued. Born in Philadelphia, PA, in 1967, Burrell is a communications and Radio/Television major who enjoys music, art and cooking.
